‘Cats’ return to Rochester marks first national Broadway tour in 18 months

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— Broadway is back in Rochester… with a purr.

Tuesday night’s return of "Cats" the musical will be the first national Broadway season show hosted by the Rochester Broadway Theatre League in 18 months.

News10NBC Reporter Jenny Ly gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the show, and what you can expect.

Organizers say the return is due in part to a boost from the New York State Music and Theatrical Production Tax Credit, which provides incentives for qualified production companies to conduct technical rehearsals in Upstate New York State entertainment venues.

The show will run from Tuesday through Sunday. RBTL said there will be no concessions offered as a way to remind people to keep their masks on at all times. No proof of vaccination is required, just wear a mask.
